Welcome to the April 2020 News Letter.


I’d like to wish you a very happy Easter!


Due to the ongoing lock-down. We will not be holding any more meetings until later in the year.


What a great evening we had with Thomas Macey in February – a born raconteur, dressed in Victorian Costume. He entertained us with his knowledge, passion for the history of Jackson’s (the iconic shop in Reading) and his never-ending quest for artefacts and memorabilia connected to the well-loved store.


Our April meeting was to have been given by Mike Cooper who would have given his latest presentation, ‘The Home Guard in Berkshire.’ His skill in research,gathering facts would have been fascinating evening.

We hope to have him back latter this year.


I hope you all are keeping well in these uncertain times and look forward to seeing you all later in the year.

Keep Safe.
